News Comments > DirectX 12 to Allow Multi-Vendor GPU Mixing?

To be fair, their statement about it was that they couldn't support such setups as that so they disabled it in their drivers.

From a support standpoint, I can completely agree with what they did. I would not want to have to try to support a competing vendors software and it's interaction with my own.

That's why it worked perfectly fine right? If it works fine, and people don't have a problem. And then they go out of their way to disable it, all that says is they threw a hissy fit. All they have to do in a support environment is say "we don't support that configuration and will offer no support on it." Problem solved.

I wasn't aware DirectX ever disabled it, but nVidia drivers did after a while, and there was someone working on creating a fix for each new version that came out to re-enable the feature, so I ran those drivers for a year or so.

DirectX doesn't disable it, it was nvidia via their drivers that did. Which is pretty typical of nvidia at times, they simply threw a hissy fit and decided to take their ball and run away.

As for AMD not competing? They seem to be doing just fine.

What the hell is this BS? That guy was never a figurehead anymore than I am. That would be like claiming Blue is a member of the inner circle of the RNC, or Cutter is the secret man behind Obama. What a piece of shit article.

Editorial standards? Nope. Yellow journalism? Yep.

Haha well since you brought it up...if Nvidia was smart they would've pulled a Ubisoft and offered a free game but said "in order to accept this title you must not sue us" in legalese.
FYI, doing the "you can't sue us" bit is illegal pretty much everywhere outside of the US. Since you can't be forced or coerced into waiving legal rights like that.

Arguments against AMD:

1. No PhysX in hardware.

2. The heat.

That's alright, physx is pretty much useless. And if you live anywhere where it gets cold in the winter you'll be happy for the extra warmth. Hell, with 3 PC's upstairs I can turn off all the vents and keep it warm. Which is nice since fuel oil is $0.942/L right now.

Do you not understand Leigh isn't complaining about the way"gamers" were shown on svu?

And if burgers and fries was about ethics, why was it burgers and fries when only one guy was a journalist and he barely mentioned her insignificant free game?

No, they went after the sex with five guys, not the journalism part.

Right, she's complaining that everyone including them are being shown as such in SVU.

Oh but it wasn't just one instance now was it? It was just that "one instance" that finally broke the camels back.

No, they went after the journalism. Or did you miss the part where the half dozen or so people were caught involved with/living with/banging the people they were writing about.

Really? I feel you're oblivious about Gamergate. Like many, you ignore that horrible treatment and focus on things that are meaningless (indie games, where no one has any power) and ignore the important things (AAA devs and publishers, the only people involved in any of this with any power) and somehow focus your efforts on whining about SJWs, which has nothing to do with journalism or ethics.
You mean the cliques, favors for favors, the inside articles with no disclosure, the rigged voting at the indie game conferences have nothing to do with ethics? Good thing you buried your head in the sand over it. Those sjw's are the ones involved in all of that, and in some cases the ones from AAA studios are also involved as seen with IGN and Ubisoft, incase you missed the mass-deleting of all of the conflict-of-interest articles.

Quboid wrote on Feb 13, 2015, 10:01:
Are these articles the same two articles that MA posted? The ones which don't say what you're claiming?
Except the articles are exactly saying and whining about the fact that gamers and their media are being portrayed that way.

Leigh is laughing at you. And her "hissy fit" was over shit head gamers obsessing over a woman's sex life with five guys.

Fuck anyone who said "burgers and fries." Games are better without assholes like that.

Actually, she hasn't realized that she's sleeping in the bed she created. Much like Kotaku and Polygon didn't until they both got dragged in and smeared by their own narrative. Then again, that's the "privileged" person who goes on globe-trotting trips to insult and be racist in other peoples countries.

Oh it wasn't the sex life people cared about, you should know that by now Beamer. It's the favors, collusion, and pro-quid-pro coverage. You know, like just what happened with IGN and Ubisoft(you can thank gamergate for bringing that one to light too). See, what you continue to fail to grasp is that instance was the trigger that had been boiling for nearly 20 years and people simply had enough. I can dig up dozens of articles from 2000-2010 calling out the same shit.

And don't worry if the joke flies over your head, but I'm sure if the sexes were reversed you'd be laughing.

I can find plenty of similar critiques about movies, tv, and music. And they don't receive this kind of tantrum in response. And the people throwing those tantrums get demonized, not every "hardcore gamer."

Forgetting something? They created that narrative and the media jumped all over it, causing them to throw their hissy fits. And that of course is just one more of many.

Well I will say that Rome II is a hell of a lot better now then it was at release. Even the FPS problems have been cleaned up, and mods now work properly across the board. Doesn't have the same feel as Shogun2 which disappoints me still but it's good enough I'm on a domination campaign.

I've read this four times and I'm still not certain it's English.
It's english. Something you might have missed though was the "law and order" episode where they placed blame on redchanit and the darknet. And of course one can't forget the wailing and whining by sites like polygon, kotaku, and various flappy headed sjw's about how it completely misrepresents gaming and gamers in general. Though they were the ones who created that narrative. They've suddenly come to the realization that the media outside of their cliques really isn't on their side, and are going apeshit trying to run damage control.

Some reading material And some more reading material. That salt.

Well guys, I already got me redchan.it(8ch redirect) address. Want your own? Possibly nsfw: Hit it up here. It's damn funny how the sjw's, and other sites are now panicking over the law & order episode. I think they may, may, have just realized that the media isn't going to jump on the bandwagon with them and is going to hurt their sweet victimbux.

Well... I wish GoG good luck with this, since a lot of the old games on gog.com no longer have their original server structure, and this could be really useful, but at the same time, DO NOT TURN INTO STEAM jr., Gog!
Galaxy is optional, you don't need to use it at all.

Rapidshare died because they imposed harsh download options on free users including restricting downloads per file per-hour. Soon as that happened people went to other services like uploadable.ch and the resurrected mega.

Only thing I can think of was there was a Command & Conquer online game they were working on.
Well that was cancelled. Though I've still got the alpha on my origin account, it was fun. But I think people were looking more towards a continuation of the series instead of a giant clusterfuck.

Poor Gators. Desperately trying to stay relevant and in the news. "The Internet Police for the Indie Scene!"

Oh look, someone posting something where the articles in question is based off of falsehoods. In neither case is there fact, or corroboration, I guess if you have to live with the belief that there's an invisible boogyman out there to get you, you simply need to invent it along the way. Then again, the media you're supporting goes out of it's way to make a bot that spews nazi propaganda and "ruin nice things" for people.

Re. Witcher
What does that mean for the PC than? 100Gb install?
This game looks so good and I don't even care for RPGs but I might buy this one.
Probably 70-80GB would be my guess, since they include multiple language packs(not subs) for the PC versions of the game.

Just out of curiosity.. how long does it take to get 500 or 80000 points?

Two weeks, though you can get 455pts a week, totaling 23660pts/year providing they don't offer any bonus point promos. 60pts/day takes about two hours plus 5pts for the community visit. And any game you optimize the first time gives you 20pts I believe.
